MicrochipAre you interested in helping lost pets get back home more quickly? The OHS is expanding our services across the Ottawa area and we will be hosting microchip clinics offsite, in hopes of microchipping more animals in our community. Microchips help lost pets get back home, so the more animals chipped, the better! We are looking for volunteers to assist with the administration of our offsite microchip clinics, and to help clients and their pets as required. Volunteers are asked to make a monthly, 4-hour commitment, for a minimum of one year.

Offsite microchip clinic program volunteer requirements:

  • Volunteers must be 18 years of age or older.
  • Volunteers must be outgoing and comfortable speaking to the public.
  • Volunteers must be detail-oriented and able to follow simple guidelines.
  • Volunteers must have customer service experience.
  • Volunteers must be able to work safely around various species of animals.
  • Volunteers must be able to arrange for their own transportation to and from offsite clinics (across Ottawa).
  • Volunteers must commit to a monthly, 4-hour commitment, for a minimum of one year.
